San Francisco Competition

“We are very proud of this recognition by the most esteemed experts in the spirits world,” says Sofia Partida, president of Partida Tequila. “This is especially gratifying since this is our first competition with the San Francisco Tasting Group.” Partida Tequila impressed a distinguished panel of judges, including F. Paul Pacult, Dale DeGroff, Julio Bermejo and Meridith May. The San Francisco World Spirits Competition is overseen by Anthony Dias Blue.

“We introduced Partida only last summer,” adds Sofia Partida. “Winning Double Gold affirms that our Reposado meets the highest international standards for excellence.”

In the December issue of the Spirit Journal, all three Partida Tequilas were awarded five out of five stars by wine and spirits authority F. Paul Pacult This marked the first time Pacult has ever given his coveted five stars for an entire tequila line.

The San Francisco World Spirits Competition was founded in 2000 by Anthony Dias Blue, Wine and Spirits Editor of Bon Appetit Magazine, and Carol Siebert, Managing Director of the San Francisco Wine Competition. This year, there were more than 700 products submitted from 52 countries.
